A great find on YouTube: Jean Shepherd ("A Christmas Story" author) did one of his "Jean Shepherd's America" programs in the early '80s about how his Old Man hated the Yankees. In his great storytelling style, he waxes poetic about his hometown Chicago, the hated North Siders and their Cubs, and the way The Old Man heckled Lou Gehrig when the Yankees came to Comiskey Park.

It's about 25 minutes total in three parts on YouTube.

Here's Part 1:
